Meet Tara!

Tara is taking a look at hand-printed textiles and the beautiful addition they can make to our creations.  I hope you enjoy a fresh look at fabric –—–

if you’re looking to add a certain *je ne sais quoi* to your projectsbig or small, you must check out the wide assortment of hand-printedtextiles available online. these fabrics are not only designedindependently but they are printed screen by screen in a process that,frankly, blows my mind a little.

since each piece is printed by hand, there is a deeply organicquality to each section of the fabric. a small smudge or drip – thoughrare – shouldn’t be thought of as a flaw but as what makes the fabrictruly unique.

Meet Natalia!

Hello everyone! I’m Natalia

from Piece N Quilt.

I am so honored that Amy asked me to be a guest blogger on her blog today.
How did I get into quilting? I was born on my great grandmas birthday. Even though she died when I was very young I have always claimed that she is my sewing inspiration. She was a very avid hand quilter and won many awards for her work. Growing up my mom owned a custom curtain and drapery business. I loved watching the ladies sew and would take their scraps and make my own quilts, which were pretty scary.

This is my very first quilt, I used all sorts of different scraps and I think now it’s scary but it actually went to the state fair and won a blue ribbon there.

Throughout the years I continued to sew and … Read More »
